Thunderbird Version 78.2.2 deleted all of my Address Groups (#&)!X%
I just took the Thunderbird update Version 78.2.2. Now my address book is missing all of my groups. I cannot figure out how to add more than one recipient to the "New improved" compose window. Wish I hadn't updated. Doesn't anyone test before releasing this crap?

Scott, do you still have the xxxx.mab.bak files in your Thunderbird profile?
TB = thunderbird in new TB goto Help > Troubleshooting Info > about:profiles > write down the PATH/folder shown in the "Root" directory line. that is the new TB's "profile" folder.
your TB "PROFILE" is here: %APPDATA%\Thunderbird\Profiles\
there you will see sub-folders like these, for-example: xxxxxxxx.default-bak xxxxxxxx.default-release etc (x in xxxxxxxx are random alpha-numeric characters/letters)
one of them is your old-TB's old profile folder, & one of them is your new TB's new profile folder.
then look for abook.mab.bak or abook.mab (address-book / Contacts-List) file inside both "profile" folder.
abook.mab can be used with v68 series TB . also in a second TB. v78 series TB converts the mab file into sqlite file, & uses it as abook.sqlite, v78 series cannot use mab file directly.
see which option you want to do : here
Whatever you do, do NOT destroy xxxx.mab.bak files in your Thunderbird profile, they will be needed by developers to determine why your addressbook is not working properly
